Russell Tovey Stripped Bare As Closeted Footballer In New Film “The Pass”

We hope movie theaters have good insurance, because we all know what happens when audiences get too close to Russel Tovey’s bare torso.

In his upcoming film The Pass, Tovey plays a closeted footballer, and judging by the promos shot floating around the web, skin is a big selling point.

According to the British Film Institute:

The Pass is the story of three very different nights over 10 years in the life of a Premier League Footballer. Jason (Russell Tovey) is at the beginning of his career, and on the night before his first big international match he and long-time friend and team-mate Ade (Arinze Kene) share a hotel room, trying to beat the inevitable pre-match tensions with locker-room banter and teenage high-jinks. Out of nowhere Jason kisses Ade. The emotional repercussions of this pass, and the decisions that follow on and off the pitch, have a major impact on every aspect of the public and private lives of both men across the next decade.

The film is an adaptation of a stage play of the same name, in which Tovey and Kene also starred.

The show played to critical acclaim, with The Guardian saying of Tovey’s performance, “What Tovey captures superbly, apart from Jason’s physical fitness, is his shift from a nervy but determined teenager into a…figure who has paid the price of fame.”

Perhaps he was drawing on the backlash he got from those femme comments in March of last year. But probably not.

Man Seriously Regrets Coming Out After Family Is Aggressively Supportive

by Derek de Koff September 26, 2016

When he came out to his progressive family at the family barbecue, he didn’t want no trouble. Just a pat on the back and the relief of knowing he could “move on with their support.” But no such luck. That close, ever-smiling, ever-prying family support didn’t stop after the obligatory “We’re so proud” and “It’s [...]
